SAMA, humane society plan soiree
BEDFORD — The Bedford County Humane Society and the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art are teaming up for the second annual Crystal Soiree 2020.
With this year’s theme, “The Black & White Masked Ball,” the event will be held from 5:30 to
11 p.m. Jan. 25 at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort.
This one-of-a-kind soiree is the hallmark of the area’s most important charity events raising funds for these two community organizations.
It is an evening of entertainment, dinner and dancing featuring music from The Josh Squared band.
If you find a mask is too bulky or restrictive, Serafina Faces will be there to paint your face with a customized mask for a small fee that benefits both organizations.
Tickets are $175 per person.
